🔹️ About FightMND 🔹️
Founded in 2014, FightMND was established with the purpose of finding effective treatments and ultimately a cure for Motor Neurone Disease.
What FightMND has done since 2014 is be the voice, and the guiding star for Australians who want to fight ‘The Beast’. The horrible and debilitating disease gradually takes away the patient’s use of their arms and legs, their ability to eat and swallow, their speech and ultimately their ability to breathe…all in an average timeframe of just 27 months.
🔹️ Cure 🔹️
Despite the first description of MND over 150 years ago, it remains a terminal diagnosis with no effective treatment or cure.
While advances in research over the last 25 years have been remarkable, there continues to be no effective therapies to slow or halt the progression of MND.
Research takes time and is expensive – but it’s the best way to fight back against the Beast.
